The results of man-made systems have moved the pendulum towards a new era of manÕs dominance over earthÕs ecological, geological, and geographical balance. The history of the industrial agricultural system in particular has left remnants of control on the American landscape, to the detriment of natural resources and our own symbiosis with the environment. The technology that has allowed the system to fl ourish now prevents us from its fu ture. Ensuring the sustainability of food security must address the current problems of the system itself. Considering architectureÕs role as an ext ension of manÕs control frames this problem as one that can be alleviated through design, providing solutions for our ext reme and fatalistic fu ture. As we move into an age of resource scarcity and pre-apocalyptic advancements in technology, Central Valley, California operates as a landscape affected by this overexploitation of capitalism. Monocultures of almond orchards have led to aquifer depletion, colony collapse disorder, a crop ext inction. Anthropocenic Landscapes aims to stave off catastrophe through the co-establishment of resource management, agribusiness, research stations, and agro-tourism through a series of ancillary productive towers in the landscape; a new infrastructure is formed to allow the industrial agricultural complex to sustain itself past the point at which resources become almost non-existent.
